Hands Across the Sand

On Saturday, there will be a nationwide public demonstration called Hands Across the Sand to advocate for the "protection of our coastal economies, oceans, marine wildlife, and fishing industry." Grist has the details:

Organized by surfer and Florida restaurant owner Dave Rauschkolb, the dispersed event looks to be aiming for a surfer zen vibe, as opposed to the angry demonstrations against BP that have arisen in New Orleans and elsewhere. (The precedent, fellow young folks, is the 1986 Hands Across America chain.)


You can participate even if you don't live near a beach.
